I just checked out the Ford and Ram dealers in town and they have a few 3/4 and 1 ton trucks but not many. It seems to be a seller's market. If you have one that you don't expect to use much in the next year you might want to sell now and buy a new one after the factories catch up.

Found two 2020 F250 Ford diesels close to Tucson but they have 3.31 rear ends. Is that normal for a Ford diesel? I have been a gas man for a long time and don't know what rear ratios are good for diesel.

For a diesel equipped with the 10 speed trans, the 3.31 ratio is fine for all but the heaviest loads. Any trailer that an F250 can handle in terms of pin or tongue weight, a 6.7 diesel with that trans and rear axle ratio will pull it effortlessly.

From my GM newsletter.

General Motors has been grappling with tight inventory all throughout 2020 thanks to a mixture of low production volumes at its assembly plants, mostly due to COVID-19, and surprisingly strong demand.

GM said previously that it hoped to have 600,000 vehicles in its nationwide inventory before the end of the year, which would bring it closer to its usual level of 800,000 vehicles. That now seems unlikely, though, as the tighter inventories have been a blessing in disguise for many dealerships.

The 6 week strike last fall didn't help their position at all either.

GM's HD marketshare has increased since 2020. You might not like the looks of them, but they are selling regardless.

Sit in the seat, drive it, look over the hood - what do you see, the road. Can't tell if the truck is ugly or beautiful, or just a truck. It's the ride that matters, and the haul-ability. Otherwise, you can always buy a Honda Accord for a lot less money. [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon]

X2.
Ive owned a lot more GM trucks than other brands since the late '50s. I always thought the '67 chevy, I had, front end was the butt ugly winner but the '21 chevy HDs front end have it beat.

I'm looking at the GMC HDs with a classy looking front ends.

My home town has a chevy and Ford dealer. Both lots are loaded with 1/2 tons and a few one ton DRW trucks but only 2-3 stripper 3/4 or one ton SRW work trucks. Both dealers say their sold as they come off the truck and the district sales people say the factory assy lines can't keep up with sales.

I like the new look, I've said it before. It was time for a change. I bet lots of the older guys here were mad when they changed from 8 tracks to tape decks also. Or went to power windows! Its all good, you can buy what you like. Thats why we live in the USA. If you dont like it, dont buy it.
